25 July 2012 Hot and Sunny Wind 0-1

Very hot and still today with fewer birds showing, although a Spotted Flycatcher at Birling was a surprise.
Covered most of the Headland sites and briefly met up with RK & RKH:

Kestrel 1
Wheatear 1
Common Whitethroat 12
Willow Warbler 2
Spotted Flycatcher 1 at Birling

Butterflies: Usual selection with large numbers of Gatekeepers.

Kestrel - Unfortunately none seem to have bred this year in the area.

Common Whitethroat - Only small numbers are present at the moment.

Head on view of a Dark Green Fritillary - still fair numbers are on the wing.
